Making sense of the JPC Rating.
The JPC Rating is calculated by dividing the total number of cars sold by an automaker in the U.S. by the company's U.S. workforce. It measures an automaker's contribution to job creation in all areas—research, design, engineering and management—not just assembly jobs. From a simple mathematical perspective, the rating tells you how many U.S. workers a company employs for every 2,500 cars they sell.

Here are some additional FAQs to help you better understand the JPC Rating:

Q: What is Domestic Content?
A: This figure reflects the percentage of U.S. or Canadian auto parts that have gone into producing a particular car.

Q: What does Direct Employment mean?
A: This is the number of U.S. workers an automaker employs at its plants, corporate offices and research labs. It does not include employees at dealerships or at automotive suppliers. Economists generally agree that each automaker job supports approximately nine others.

Q: What is Percent U.S. Market Share?
A: This number represents the manufacturer's overall percentage of the total number of cars sold in the U.S. You can compare a company's market share with its "jobs share," which is the company's share of the total U.S. automaker workforce. Some companies support more U.S. jobs than their market share would suggest, while others support less. For example, Hyundai sells about 4.8% of the cars bought in the U.S., but employs only 1.4% of U.S. autoworkers. Ford sells about 15.6% of the cars bought in the U.S., but employs 27.3% of U.S. workers.
